    ... by Michele. The food and atmosphere at Guido's were very rich. I had stuffed guinea hen and Jay had wild boar which he thinks was actually beef. Guido's is known for its steak but since the steaks were over a kilogram they were too big for us. We were chagrined to find people around us sharing them. Duh!

    After dinner we walked through the streets to meet someone from our Cinque Terre tour company hoping to retrieve Jim's lost sunglasses and I was on a mission to ...

    ... and it was quite funny to look around see everyone's head drooping.

    This was the end of the normal route and those who wanted to hitch a ride to the hotel could do so.

We promised them ...

    ... Florence...it was in the 14th century...but they won't forget it. Quite a commercial centre and route for pilgrims at that time, and the claim is banking started here.... Saw the banners of the 'contrades' or districts of the city, and Camilla was a proud Member of the Lion Contrade.

    ... For a little history/geography, Siena is divided into 17 separate contradas which are Italian city wards. Apparently these originally were associated with specific trades such as goldsmiths (unicorns), silk manufacturers (caterpillars), and blacksmiths (porcupines).
